that kind of trade, so agreements that give us access to the consumers outside of the united states are beneficial for creating jobs back here in the west u.s. so i look all of the free trade agreements that have been negotiated in ways that are pending as ways to stimulate job growth. in fact, there have been studies done, and they're all estimates, but the conservative estimates of president obama himself i use this number is the agreement could generate 70,000 new jobs. at a time when the economy is hurting, those are the numbers you want to be generating, and that is a conservative estimate. this agreement, i know, will create more jobs, because there is a lot of opportunities we have not been able to tap yet because of the high barriers that are there. >> we have been setting products over there. they are a big trading partner with us right now. -- we have been sending products over there. >> they are the third largest market for us. but can you imagine, is larger that market could be? we have a cost-conscious -- cost-conscious global economy. let's make it so they do not have
of the united states, i am pleased to transmit legislation and supporting documents to implement the united states-colombia trade promotion agreement. the agreement is an important part of my administration's efforts to spur economic growth, increase exports and create jobs in the united states while promoting our core values. the agreement will create significant new opportunities for american workers, farmers, ranchers, businesses and consumers by opening the colombian market and eliminating barriers to u.s. goods, services and investments. the agreement also represents a historic development in our relationships with colombia. colombia is a steadfast strategic partner in the united states and a leader in the region. the agreement reflects the commitment of the united states to supporting democracy and economic growth in colombia. it will also help colombia battle production of illegal crops by creating alternative economic opportunities. under the agreement, tariffs on over 80% of u.s. consumer and industrial exports will be eliminated immediately. the united states agricultural exports

, the islamic republic currently faces serious charges from the united states that it has plotted to assassinate the saudi ambassador to the u.s. i will press president ahmadinejad on this issue. we are also here, of course, just days after the death of another enemy of the united states, moammar gadhafi, and i'll ask the iranian president for his thoughts on the leader's demi demise. we are also witnessing serious internal tensions inside iran as the president appears locked in a powerful struggle with other powerful forces in the regime, perhaps the most powerful of all, the supreme leader. meanwhile, economic sanctions against iran appear to be having an effect, and the country is dismannedling many of its subsidies. and while the winds of change are blowing through the arab world today they have bypassed iran as the regime has been able to crush the opposition green movement. this makes iran less attractive as a model for millions of young middle easterners as they seek greater representation and voice. america's relations with iran remain deeply troubled. the two countries haven't had diplo

, the reality is that in 1970 -- 1970 -- 25% of all jobs in the united states were manufacturing jobs, and today that number is just 9%. 9%. in july of 2000, there were 17.3 million manufacturing workers in this country. today there are only 11 million manufacturing workers. in my small state of vermont -- vermont is not ohio, it's not michigan. it has never been one of the great manufacturing centers in the country. but even in a small state like vermont, what we have seen is a huge decline in good-paying manufacturing jobs which have certainly impacted our middle class. ten years ago we had approximately 45,000 manufacturing jobs in vermont. last year we had 31,000 manufacturing jobs. we've lost about a third of our manufacturing jobs. and i should tell you, mr. president, that 7,800 of those jobs were lost as a result of the trade agreement with china and another 1,300 were lost as a result of nafta. the key issue here today, mr. president, is whether we continue our disastrous trade policy which includes nafta, permanent normal trade relations with china and cafta. do we add on to trade poli

as members of this committee have noted, the united states has deep trade investment and financial links with europe and stability in europe is crucial for our exports and for american jobs. it's clear that the europeans have resources and capacity to deal with challenges they face. european leaders made progress over the weekend toward designing comprehensive frame work for tackling this crisis and leaders will meet tomorrow. this agreement will need to be implemented quickly and firmly. stepping back for a moment, the macro economic and financial challenges faced by several european countries since the 2008 financial crisis have exposed serious crisis within the union. recent experiences reveal the need for stronger mechanisms for fiscal discipline and more markets that allow countries to achieve growth potential and for adequate crisis response tool kit to respond to economic and financial stress. in response to these challenges, europe has taken wide ranging action both to strengthen national policies and to reinforce the overall frame work for the euro area. at the country lev

the united states quite controls the situation. we have a number of countries in the region who dare to have their own interests and act on the basis of what they believe are their interests. those in moscow and washington are not just acting. there also reacting. they're not just creating situations. they are managing situations. it is difficult. it is controversial. so is likely to become more do after this weekend's events in moscow. i am talking about president putin deciding he will be coming back to power. those of us who have watched the remarkable united russian congress and those of us who were back in moscow during the days of communism felt it was all very well orchestrated. it looked quite impressive. during the, the minister -- during the communist party congresses, they would at least proceed with a vote and elect their candidates. this time, i have to give them credit, they were quite efficient and did not want to waste any time. prime minister putin came to the podium and said that president medvedev would be leaving the united russian party. no vote, some applause. clearly a
charged in an alleged plot to assassinate the saudi arabian ambassador to the united states. one is a naturalized u.s. citizen in custody and identified as 56-year-old mondaysor ar bab si ar. he appeared in a courthouse this afternoon. he did not enter a plea. according to the complaint that we read, he planned for someone to kill the saudi arabian ambassador at one of his favorite restaurants in washington, d.c. he told an informant that mass casualties didn't matter, saying, "if the hundred go with him, expletive, them." the plot itself is a work of intrigue. it began this spring when he met in mexico with a d.e.a. informant posing as a member of a violent drug cartel. over the next few months, he got the informant to agree to assassinate the ambassador for a fee o$1.5 million. he also wanted an attack on the -- with help from mexican government, he was arrested at new york's jfk airport on september 29th. he confessed. now,u.s. officials have been talking throughout the day saying that what is perhaps most important here is the direct link that could exist to the iranian gover
continuing efforts to plan attacks against the united states. >> awlaki justifies such attacks saying americans are at war with islam. >> with the american invasion of iraq and continued u.s. aggression against muslims -- and i eventually came to the conclusion that jihad against america is binding upon myself, just as it is binding on every other able muslim. >> the pentagon is saying little about the drone strike that ended his war. three others died along him including another radical american who was the producer of the jihadi online magazine called "inspire." the notion of killing americans instead of bringing them to justice, not sitting well with some. >> awlaki was born here, he's an american citizen. he was never tried or charged with any crimes. nobody knows if he ever killed anybody. >> the american civil liberties union agrees, saying awlaki's killing violates both u.s. and international law. others say awlaki placed himself outside american justice, but not beyond american air power. we'll talk about the legality of all this a little bit. first, more details of the attack
because the japanese never would have attacked honolulu harbor for being part of the united states if the united states and descendants of american missionaries had not overthrow the hawaiian queen who handed over the island to the u.s.. that was the start of my interest in the relationship between the two countries. >> host: when did the missionaries first go to hawaii? >> guest: they left boston harbor, new england calvinist left boston harbor in 1819 and arrived in hawaii in 1820. the first new england whalers from boston harbor arrived because hawaii was a great stopping of point between whaling grounds. these groups arrived within six months of each other and they had an enormous impact on the island's. >> host: what happened? >> guest: the missionaries set up shop and settle down and set about christianizing and westernizing the hawaiians and teaching the entire population to read after they had invented a hawaiian written language and translated the bible into that language. they were well established and well acquainted with hawaiian monarchies. whalers were sailors on leav
, and that would be permanent. >> the relationship between singapore and the united states is very important to both countries. could you talk about that? >> it is one of the most important external relationships. america is the major power in the world and very important influence. in terms of the economy, the trade is a big part of our trade with them. we of a free-trade agreement with america. in terms of security, america is a major player insuring the security of the asia-pacific region, and we have a very good relationship with the united states. america has a big influence all over the world. many people from singapore study in america and send their children there. when you watch movies from hollywood, when you read magazines, many of them are american, it is a major part of our world. of course the other powers in asia are also developing. china is playing an increasingly poor and -- the important role, and over the time the balance will shift. >> in singapore, i have the opportunity to visit with u.s. ambassador david adelman. >> how do you account for its success? it is a very suc
diplomats, the saudi ambassador to the united states? >> he's a prominent spokesman in saudi government and very well recognized and very well respected in washington, d.c. whether you are part of the government or sympathetic, there is no doubt he was at the jurvethure of a lot of worlds that are critical and for that matter he makes a good target. it's not a secret that the saudi government shares concerns about iranian interest in that region and the saudis and iranians have clashed over a number of different issues including what's going on in bahrain and the struggle between the government protest in bahrain to the sovereignty of particular islands in the persian gulf. for the iranians, whether it's the government we speak of or people sympathetic to their cause. they tend to see the saudis as the local representatives. the target on the ambassador here in the united states will send a clear message and the question it's going to be in everyone's minds right now, is this something linked back to iranian intelligence or is this done by homegrown individuals? >> i want to zero in at

? >> keynesian economics would be neoclassical economics so it was brought to the united states in the 1930's and 40's and by a very famous economist and people like that they brought these ideas to the united states and so he is neoclassical, however, in my work why try to do is the difference between the economic policy so keynesian chezem is an economic policy but what economists actually do is different than the policies. they have different ideas and models that are fundamentally different than what we hear about in the policy world. so this policy world they are often are around either you or for the market or for the states. the time of the tea party is often saying we are the first market and obama is for socialism or the state or the planning or some kind of interventionism that is a policy discussion. it is very different from what actually goes on with an economics. economists are tree much interested in a different kind of discussion about how to model different things and they models since the way they do this is they don't have a state versus market idea the state and the market
it was brought to the united states in the 1930's and '40's by a very famous economist paul samuelson of the people like that. a prop these ideas to the united states. however, and my work and trying to do is show that there's a slight difference between the policy, economic policy. an economic policy. what economists actually do it is different than policy. economists said different ideas and models of a fundamentally different and we hear about in the policy will. if it a year for the market arer the state. we hear this all the time with the two-party. the tea party is often said were for free-market. obama is more socialism of the state over planning are some kind of interventionism. that is the policy discussion. is very different from what actually goes on. economists are very much interested in a different kind of discussion about the model different things. the model things. the way they do this is a actually is in the state versus market a deal. equally efficient in the malls. trying to separate the policy discussions from the economist's ideas and what they're trying to do. w
